Professional Biography

  • Welcome to kindergarten! My name is Tiffany Barker. I am excited to be a part of your student's learning this year at South Bay.

    I got my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Central Washington University. Go Wildcats! When I am not at school, I enjoy camping, hiking, walking my dog, paddleboarding, and getting outside.

    During my very first years teaching, I had just one student... my little sister. I would teach using my old school workbooks and a chalkboard our dad hung up in the garage. I even had my own bell to signal breaks in the day. More than anything, I loved being able to help somebody understand new concepts. I have maintained that same passion for teaching to this day. When a student has a lightbulb moment, I am filled with joy. I hope to foster a lifelong love for learning in each and every student. 

    Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and ...
